"Grand Theft Auto V" for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One has only seen action for a week and players are already taking to the support forums to express their discontent over connectivity problems. Since the launch for the next-gen consoles, users have been reporting problems regarding access to multiplayer features.
Rockstar had tried to resolve the issue by launching update 1.03. The update was to improve connection stability as well as other minor fixes but fans are still reporting the issues on the support forums. Such problems include difficulty in joining missions as well as maintaining connection to multiplayer.
As such, users have commented on their disappointment in joining a game. "One week after launch and I've yet to see a lobby, let alone join a game," one user wrote. more >>
Black Friday sale is looming in the horizon and is seems that Microsoft is slashing off the price of their latest-gen console. In addition to slashed prices for consoles, certain retailers are also offering Xbox One bundles with "Assassin's Creed Unity" and "Assassin's Creed Black Flag."
The Xbox One will be available for purchase for $329, which is $70 off of the listed price. It also looks like Sony has not marked down the price of their console for the holiday season. Target and Walmart have already begun advertising the console for the marked down price but Microsoft has mentioned that it will apply the discount and bundles across the board.
The company had also announced that the prices will be for four days from Thursday through Saturday and then on Monday. The console will only be available on Monday through online orders, however. more >>

Apple has been having software problems, both in the mobile and desktop platforms. Problems have been persisting ever since both the OS X Yosemite and iOS 8 were first released. Among problems are connectivity problems and unnecessary battery drain. The Cupertino company had already released a number of updates but said problems still persist.
iOS 8 is already at 8.1.1 and the problems are still present, with more Apple users getting more and more impatient with each passing update. In Apple support sites and other third-party sites, users are reporting that the hotspot of some phones have stopped functioning after the update.
"Same here. Hotspot not working since I upgraded to 8.0.2. Such an annoying issue. I phoned my carrier this morning and they didn't wan to get involved since 'it's a device issue since settings can't be saved.' No carrier updates either when I installed 8.0.2. So right now, no hotspot and no one wants to get involved," one user reports. more >>
